The Portsmouth Public Library is inviting everyone to catch the screening of the documentary “Diana Vreeland: The Eye has to Travel” happening on May 16, 2013 at the Levenson Community Room from 6:30 pm onwards. This event is part of the Spring Cinema event hosted by the Library.
During Diana Vreeland’s fifty year reign as the “Empress of Fashion,” she launched Twiggy, advised Jackie Onassis, and established countless trends that have withstood the test of time. She was the fashion editor of Harper’s Bazaar where she worked for twenty-five years before becoming editor-in-chief of Vogue, followed by a remarkable stint at the Metropolitan Museum of Art’s Costume Institute, where she helped popularize its historical collections. DIANA VREELAND: THE EYE HAS TO TRAVEL is an intimate portrait and a vibrant celebration of one of the most influential women of the twentieth century, an enduring icon who has had a strong influence on the course of fashion, beauty, publishing, and culture.
